Showing for a week from this Friday, December 4, at the Isle of Bute Discovery Theatre in Rothesay is The Lady In The Van (12A).

Written by Alan Bennett and starring Maggie Smith, Dominic Cooper, James Corden and Jim Broadbent, the film tells the true story of Bennett’s strained friendship with Miss Mary Shepherd, an eccentric homeless woman whom Bennett befriended in the 1970s before allowing her to temporarily park her Bedford van in the driveway of his London home - a temporary stay which ended up lasting for 15 years.

The Lady In The Van is showing at 7.30pm on Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with a matinee on Sunday. To book in advance, call the Discovery Centre on (01700) 507043; you’ll find more information on forthcoming films in Rothesay at www.discoverycentrecinema.blogspot.co.uk.
